Garden Posse for your ears

The Garden Posse is coming to a radio near you!

Over the next two days, we'll be on a media blitz - like Obama, but with two local radio stations instead of 6 major networks. Lindsay (who writes this blog) will talking to local radio stations about guerrilla gardening in Austin, and spreading the good word about our benefit show on Sunday. Here is where and when you can tune in:

Thursday, Sept 24, 7 - 8 pm

Lindsay, founder of the Garden Posse, along with Megan of Quilombo Garden and Charity of Skillshare Austin will be featured on the hour-long program Upstream. We'll be talking about how the Garden Posse and Quilombo got started (a lovely and intertwined tale), how we've evolved, what we're about, and why community gardening is important. In other words, everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask. Plus, you'll hear music from the musicians playing for us on Sunday!

Friday, Sept 25, 7 -9 pm

It's only logical to promote guerrilla gardening on a pirate radio station. We'll be hanging out with the folks from Annie Street Radio, talking about the Garden Posse and playing music live in studio. Featuring Danny Malone, Harrison Speck and Eva Mueller from One Hundred Flowers and Lady Maybe & the Sometimes Friends, and Marshall Escamilla of Stephen's Island Wren. All talented, all dreamboats, all the time. Also, I've been told there will be drinking. It's a can't miss, tune in!

We'll also be in print this weekend. Look for the Garden Posse Benefit Show on the Sunday "Best Bets" page of the Austin-American Statesman (Lifestyles, page 2). You can bet on us. We will totally win you money. Okay, maybe not money. A garden? We will win you a garden.
